Well blogger friends I am happy to report after a week the scale has FINALLY moved!! I weighed in this morning at 173, I could hardly believe it when I saw the number!! That means I only have 18 more pounds to lose to meet my goal! Makes it seem so much closer & attainable now that it is lower than 20lbs! I didn't even think about it earlier this week when I was frusrated since the scale wasn't moving, but it was my TOM so I am sure that had something to do with it. My goal now is to maintain it so I can have a BIG loss at ww this week!

Last night (since we have the internet now...yah!!!) I went to itunes and filled my ipod with some great running music. I had just been listening to local radio station on a portable radio and all those commercials in between songs really aren't "motivating"! I am happy to report that I think the music helped TREMENDOUSLY!! This morning I ran the first 2.25 miles of my run without stopping! That is the farthest I have ever ran without stopping before (1.75 miles was my fartherest before)! Total my run was 3.5 miles and I only walked for 8 minutes (2 of those are warm up minutes) of the 35 minutes total. I know that isn't very fast and that is a lot of walking, but I'm getting there! My boss/friend (the one I talked about last week) keeps telling me it will get easier....slowly I think I am beginning to believe her!
Tonight we went to Ames (a bigger town about 45 min away) to look at laptops. We only have a desktop right now and it over 5 years old! Well I did really good for supper and had Subway. And then DH asks if I want to go to Coldstone.....uuuuummmm taking me to Coldstone is like taking a recovering alcholic to a bar! But of course I said yes. I tried their "Sinless Sans Fat Ice Cream", but it wasn't very good. So what did I do? Well you already saw the picture...yep I got the "love it" size of the Peanut Butter Cup Perfection!! Man was it good!! And then I come home to look up the nutrition facts on it and wanted to puke it all out....23 points is COMPLETELY ridiculous!! But never fear, I am going to burn it off at the gym tomorrow. Boy am I NEVER going to do that again! And to top it off we didn't even get a laptop....the one we wanted they only two left of and they had done something special to them already and since that was done we had to pay $60 extra for it and we already felt that we were stretching with the selection that we made. So we are going to order one online.
